We called around looking for a room and this was recommended to us. We were not happy with the price. Way too expensive for such a small room. Asked front desk about why we didn't have a suite but was informed all rooms were suites. When we unfolded sofa bed it came out to our bed and I couldn't get around it so we have to turn sofa bed around in order to walk in small room. Went to get ice and ice machine was empty so we had to get our son out and go to a convenience store to buy ice. We should not have had to do that after traveling for two days we were worn out. When we checked in that afternoon they would not give us a key to our room so we had to come back to get it. When we get breakfast the next morning the selections were poor. No biscuits to eat with sausage and eggs so we had to go to McDonalds to eat. Not real happy with our stay.
We love staying here! The hotel is PERFECT for everything we need. The rooms are all Suites with kitchens and very spacious with enough room for your family to spread out. It is always clean, the beds are comfortable, free wifi, etc. The kitchen is such a plus for families. You have a full size fridge, stovetop, dishes and a dishwasher!!! You can't beat that. The price is great to under $100. Please make Towneplace your choice when traveling through Texarkana. You'll be glad you did,
I have stayed at this location multiple times and my most recent stay was okay. The facility is well-maintained and the rooms are spacious enough. For me, the breakfast was a bit skimpy, but acceptable. Bottom line, this really is a decent, clean-looking, modern place, BUT I wish they would find a way for all Marriott properties that accept pets to have separate floors for animals and those of us who don't want to be exposed to people's pets. Like the old smoking and non-smoking, there should be animal and non-animal rooms. While I was there they were searching for someone's escaped cat out and about the building, and the smell of animals was otherwise very present. I have to assume animals have done something on the furniture and floors in the rooms I stay in, that has not been thoroughly cleaned, and as someone who is not 'an animal lover' it makes me mostly avoid places that have an open door policy to pets.
My mom, kids and I checked in after a long drive from Houston after being up all night with a sick toddler. I was exhausted and frustrated after checking in because I waited over 30 minutes for a luggage cart - apparently the large party that checked in before us took both luggage carts and went MIA. I wasn't overly pleasant because we had a lot of stuff to unload from the truck, including a large cat crate, twin 1 year-olds and a 2 year old. They had to go to the neighboring hotel and get a luggage cart for me, which was greatly appreciated. Once we got to our room it was 80 some odd degrees, but we eventually got it cooled off. We went to bed early In hopes of getting up early the next day. Sadly, I woke up the next morning with a stomach bug which made us extend our stay another day. And it's a good thing we did, because my mom got the stomach bug a few hours later. Between all the sickness, the toilet ended up clogged up and we had to call maintenance to fix the toilet. Then again, the toilet clogged - after the second visit they admitted to us that they've had issues with the commode in that particular room for awhile. The next morning, we had the same issue waiting for a luggage cart and after 20 minutes they finally sent somebody to get one from across the street again. Obviously, the luggage cart issue is beyond their control. The toilet issue obviously needs to be solved, but all in all in was a nice stay. Thank you to everyone we encountered there for their assistance. They even brought us water and Gatorade to the room when we needed it. And, a special thanks to the poor housekeeping staff that had to clean our room. I sincerely hope they didn't get that nasty bug we apparently brought with us.
This Marriott provides a great value for an overnight stay in a room that is slightly larger than a motel room. It also provides a fridge and microwave and couch. The breakfast was good and the location convenient to the highway and places to eat. We did have a minor service problem that should have been fixed before we arrived.
We only stayed overnight but highly recommend and would stay again. Super clean. Cute hallways and rooms are really big with a kitchenette. Free breakfast is better than most with ham and scrambled eggs. Next to a steak and shake of that matters to you. Was surprised to see a dog in the hotel. Good to know they are welcome here if you have one and or in case you are allergic to them. I wouldn't have wanted to be in a guest room next door though. Dogs were barking at 6 am.
This is a pretty good hotel property. They have full kitchenettes with a dishwasher in the room, nice sized closet, a couch, flat screen tv and even provide microwave popcorn with a popcorn bowl in the cupboard. Bathroom is spacious and there is a very large work area/desk with storage and a very good business type chair for business users. Internet is free. So what's not to like? Well, first, there is this large chair in the room. It is jammed on the right side of the bed, in front of the end table and giving a person little room to get into or out of bed on that side. We moved the chair but then only half the sofa was usable. It just didn't fit in the room. The air conditioning unit was great at cooling down the room, but it also leaked condensation on the carpet - we usually found that when closing the curtains in our socks! The desk area, as I mentioned, is nice, but the light for the desk is blinding as the florescent tube is too low. I am 6 foot and had the chair at it's highest setting, yet still got blinded until I taped paper up to make a little curtain. Breakfast here is hit and miss. They have sausage patties every morning, milk, cereal and a fried egg thing with black spots that looks like the creatures that attacked the planet Deneva and then Spock in "Operation: Annihilate!". If you ate them at the same time with the sausage, they were OK but my wife didn't like them. The last day, there were scrambled eggs and they were OK. No waffle machine here - I kinda' liked that. You can walk to Steak N Shake or Red Lobster - they are in the same parking lot. The pool had a sign saying it was already closed for the season. All in all, a pretty good experience but some tweaks would have made it a great one.
Great place for a family of 6 to stay. We rented the 2 bedroom suite and it was plenty of room for us. Also took along our pet. There was a $25.00 extra fee for pets but still was cheaper then renting 2 rooms and had a small kitchen. Very nice!
We were in town for a funeral, and we had our dogs. We travel with them a lot. Here was our concern: When we bring the dogs into a room we always keep them on the leash because one of them tends to try to mark his territory. The other dog has NEVER tried to pee in a room. Both the dogs went crazy smelling the floor and both tried to pee. The room didn't smell, but we were concerned about how clean it was. The desk said they shampoo the carpet after every pet visit. I question that. We just had to keep them in their crate. The breakfast was very scarce. They did have the waffle iron the second morning but by them we decided to eat out. We would stay here again. We visit Texarkana a lot. It would not be our first choice, however.
Entire staff is friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make stay above par. Rooms extremely clean and modern. Breakfast above average. I am very well-traveled and am extremely impressed. I would go out of my way to return to this property. Well done!
